As you may know, our CEO, Dan Nicholson, is a SeattleU graduate and the current President of the Alumni Board of Governors. Additionally, one of his passions is basketball and thus you’ll often find him at SeattleU men’s basketball games yelling and “KaKah’ing” (the sound of a Redhawk).
Dear Nth Degree Clients:
I often like to muse to friends, family and Nth Degree’ers about how the lynchpin for starting Nth Degree CPAs was to create a firm that’s deeply rooted in its relationship with clients, staff and business partners. In my opinion, the bedrock of any solid relationship is open communication and transparency. So, with that, I am writing you my first annual CEO report with the goal of providing open and transparent communication. Before I delve into more intimate details about our firm, I need to address a few block-and-tackling type things.
We have moved offices!
We have moved out of Pioneer Square and are now across from Pacific Place at 1809 7th Avenue, Suite 303, Seattle WA 98101. We are excited about this move as it allows us to continue growing. Feel free to stop by any time, we love to show the new space off.
We have added new skills to the team
Jason Hedlund has joined the team as a Tax Director and Rachal Beckman as Office Manager. We are thrilled to expand the Company to include these valuable new employees.
Tax Associate, Chet Syverson, and Accounting Senior, Mandy Rubeor, both passed the CPA exam.

The October 15th Individual Income Tax-Filing Deadline is upon us and we at Nth Degree CPAs thought it appropriate to outline a better understanding of what happens on and around the deadline and also provide some tips to avoid any stress that may accompany tax-filing time for tax-filers.
Nth Degree CPAs is proud to announce that team members Mandy Rubeor and Chet Syverson have both passed the CPA Exam.
“I’m very proud of Chet and Mandy for their tireless work on the CPA exam. Passing the CPA exam is the culmination of years of hard work. It starts with 5 years’ worth of college credits and ends with an average of 450-600 hours of exam preparation. So, needless to say, it’s not for the faint of heart. They committed to and worked until they passed all 4 sections of the exam and the hard work they put in is really reflective of their personal commitment to excellence and continual self improvement.”
-Dan Nicholson, CEO, Nth Degree CPAs
As you may or may not have known, Nth Degree CPAs has moved offices from our beloved Pioneer Square address to the heart of the downtown corridor in the Tower Building on 7th Ave, just one block north of Pacific Place and only a few blocks from the Seattle Convention Center.

1. When Setting Up Your Chart Of Accounts, Less Is More
Your chart of accounts is the complete list of all of the items you need to categorize your business activities and is there to help you understand where your company’s money goes and where it comes from. You can get very detailed when setting up the chart of accounts, but remember, the more time you spend in your accounting software, the less time you’re spending on revenue generating business activities.

Seattle, WA, – May 9th 2014 – Nth Degree CPAs, located in Seattle, WA has announced a high-value part-time controller and bookkeeping services option for small businesses.
The firm announced that they are offering the service because they listened to a consistent need expressed by a number of current small business clients.
“We had a number of clients who needed bookkeeping services, but at a higher level than their in-house resources could support. They may have had an administrator who could key data into a piece of accounting software, like Quickbooks, but as far as the experience to correctly enter each of those transactions, produce the proper financial reports that provide business insight that’s relevant and digestible, or consult with the management team on those financials to drive business decisions, the companies lacked the resources,” said Dan Nicholson, Founder and CEO of Nth Degree CPAs.
